The swimming pool is ideal for spending them lazy days by the pool or as a place to relax after a day of sightseeing, with a Jacuzzi for those who wish to fully unwind. The restaurant specialises in buffet-style local cuisine, while Jack's Bar serves drinks and snacks. A daytime and evening entertainment programme is available at the hotel.

Free Wi-Fi is available in the reception only.

The town of Bugibba is lively both day and night, with a central main square where you’ll find restaurants, bars, shops and casino. You will be just a short distance away from the main square, meaning you'll have no excuse to miss out on anything. The hotel also puts you just a stone's throw away from the beautiful coastline.

Very helpful Staff

This is our second visit to The Bugibba Hotel and found again that the staff were great and the food plentiful, tasty with variety. This Hotel is old and is being 'Heath Robinson' patched up with the staff doing their best to 'cover the cracks'. Wall fittings are loosely fixed, shower heads don't fit the wall mounts, shower wall mounts are also loose. The hot water is far too hot and the cold barely runs out of the taps. Taking a shower calls for fine control of the hot with the cold fully on. TV consists of very few English speaking channels and this is no SKY TV, screens are 15" with no remote. At night time the pool area is very poorly lit, (if at all) and the back entrance is now padlocked. The pictures of the Hotel were taken a long long time ago and bear no resemblance of what the Hotel is like now. The walk down to Bugibba square is down hill going in an extended dog leg direction and the streets are not very clean with lots of standing rubbish, fly tipping. The safe deposit box will cost around e20 a week, (boxes showing signs of age with rust) the fridge e15 a week, tax e7, WiFi is free around the pool area only, pricey for room coverage through a private ISP. If a person can overlook these imperfections of which there are very many then the stay here will be very enjoyable and its location is great for all amenities. We just might make a third visit if it has not been pulled down and rebuild as pending for the nearby sea view hotel. My wife and I, (senior citizens) really did enjoy our time in Malta yet again.

My stay

Over the years I have stayed at the Bugibba Hotel many times and found it not be up to the standard it used to be. So many changes have been made, and not for the better, and I do not consider it to be worthy of a 3 star rating. In there was no rating displayed outside the entrance. We arrive at around noon only to be told the room was not ready and couldn't book until 2pm. When we went to the room it was sparse and very basic compared to what is was in earlier years, many of the furnishings had been removed and felt musty! We discovered that the cooker did not work, the fridge did on work, and the taps in the bathroom were that were that covered with lime scale they could not be turned on or off without great difficulty. There were no towels available until later in the day. there was no telephone in the room. In my booking I asked for a sea view, there was none, and the room over looked the street. We complained and asked to be moved to another room which they did, and was considerably better but still sparse, over looking the pool. I noticed that pool was considerably smaller than used to be, due to a brick wall having been built cutting off a large part of the pool. we later found out that it was because a large portion of the complex had been turned into a care home for the elderly. The photographs on the website are well out of date I consider misrepresents its facilities, and should be investigated to bring it up to date. We booked this holiday around the dates of the International Firework display which we booked up for through a tour agent in the hotel, due to bad management of the agent(I am blaming the hotel for this) the pick was late and consequently missed the display (we were refunded) I the second room there were issues the cooker was faulty and blew all the fuses when one of the heating plates was switched on, the window in the bathroom could not be locked and banged when the wind got up. My friends were reasonably happy having been the first time they have stayed there, but for me I was disappointed. All-in-all the holiday was enjoyable.

The best thing about my stay was...

The weather, and was pleased to see how Malta is changing for the better, and still consider it to be one of safest countries to take a holiday in these uncertain times.
